on the campaign trail today. inin the home stretch president obama and governor romney both wanted to be the hope of change coming up. >> current tv knows there are two sides to every story. >> i have no control on my side! >> this is south jet 227, we are here we go! brace for impact! >> you saved a lot of lives. << uh! >> denzel washington saving the day. >> he was very worried. >> looks like a cool character. >> he reminds you of. >> sully. >> the guy who landed the plane in the hudson. >> he has to be a hero. >> he definitely a hero, yea. >> now, what if you heard the other side of the story? >> i had a couple beers the night before the flight. >> you had alcohol in your system. that could be life in prison. >> are you hiding something? >> well, there's a darker side to this guy. >> makes it a lot more complicated. >> there's more depth there. >> he's not god himself. >> so it makes it much more interesting. >> you saved my mom. >> it's much more intriguing now. >> while there are two sides to every story... >> it's a lie. ... in the end, there's only one truth. >> flight. only in theaters no
took a tumble. both the president and governor romney reacted to the report during stops on the campaign trail this morning. >> we made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. >> and joining any now is "newsweek" columnist zachary caribel. let's get your analysis of the numbers. >> unemployment ticked up, but statistically it's a nonfactor. it's been where it is now for the past six, seven, eight months. it doesn't matter who is elected on tuesday. that's likely where we are. it's the only more than silver lining is you have moderate job creation. i think no one would prefer having less than 171,000 jobs created in a month. that's where we are right now. >> the anticipation was 125,000 job woos would be added. it's so intriguing the dynamics playing out in the northeast with sandy. when we started with a big calendar ticking down the job reports and the one right before the election, there was some analysis this would be big. it's not. >> one thing th
romney's way. that has flipped. obama was better on the economy and now it's romney. look, both camps know that new hampshire is is going to get a lot of visitors very soon. >> that's for sure. we've got three more coming over the next four days. i know you're busy in the poll and trying to do our best to make up and do this in the midst of sandy. thank you, sir. >> yeah, my pleasure, chuck. be well. >> all right. turning back now to the destruction that is brought by sandy. the well known city of seaside heights, these pictures have become iconic instead of what used to be ike connick, that roller coaster is sitting in the atlantic ocean. michelle franzen is joining us now. i can only imagine how bad it looks from the air and now you're seeing it up close. >> reporter: yeah. we definitely had a chance to tour here. just to give you a ground look, this is an area where people would normally be walking on the boardwalk in the morning and running, sitting at the park bemp benches. but it's just ripped apart and just the force of the water, we heard stories of how quickly the water raced
in there. you won't remember anything. is it possible that obama and romney could both win and split running the country on alternating days? >> it's happened in a number of times. in the united states in the 40s. fdr governed with grandfather's friend. nobody knows that. rick, an unknown rascal. no. it's like a beatles record not a herman hermit's record. obama is going to win. i think piling nate silver and all these people. it seems like he is right. >> greg: do you think it's close or not even close? >> i think it's close but not as close as lot of pundits are letting on. dick morris says it's going to be landslide for homicidal. i don't know what planet dick morris is living on. i just choose the opposite. i know he is friend of yours. >> greg: we go wai back, we lived in a camper for six years, it didn't work out. bernie, do you agree? >> now that governor christie has stuck his share in mitt romney it's going to be an obama landslide. i just wonder this nate silver came out of no one. not only is dork but degenerate gambler and probably not. i'm sure he does. [ laughter ] >> t
. and also, you had gm and chrysler auto executives both coming out and condemning mitt romney. so the people who should naturally be supporting mitt romney in the last week of the campaign, they're actually supporting barack obama. and that's got to hurt. >> all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate y'all coming on. we'll see you in the next few days. thank you. >>> and developing news right now that we just referenced, janet napolitano is on the ground right now in new york city as major problems persist after hurricane sandy. lines two miles long just to get gas. >>> and we're told within the last hour, there's a four-hour traffic jam in the lincoln tunnel. we'll get a live update for you. >>> plus, congressman todd akin was abandoned by the national gop establishment over his, quote, legitimate rape comments. but now akin is putting hundreds of thousands of dollars into a major ad blitz. the question is where is the money coming from? it is just one of the things we thought you should know, and you can joinous conversation on twitter. you can find us @tamronhall and @newsnation. [
the election day, president obama and mitt romney will both be hitting the final battleground states very, very hard. we've got a look at some new polling in a few of these states, "the wall street journal"/nbc/marist poll shows the president with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a very small two-point edge in new hampshire. i'm joined by mark preston live in washington. mark, there's been a lot of talk about the president's handling of hurricane sandy and how it might affect this race. we get a glimpse of what americans think about this handling in a new poll by abc/"washington post." 78% of voters approve of the president's response, 44% say they approve of mitt romney's reaction. neither candidate is seeking to politicize this were tragedy overtly. but it really does beg the question, how could this affect this race? >> it certainly puts the president in the position of being a commander in chief and being the leader at the time of a crisis. and in many ways, he's gotten a lot of support of one of mitt romney's top surrogates, and that's chris c
that plays out over the days. >> it plays for governor romney. both of these guys, you cannot ignore a fact a week from today is the election. charles: right. >> so, he has to do everything he can -- well, the president has to do everything he has to do. charles: how does it help romney. >> criticize iffed he doesn't do his job. he's criticized if he does too much and make it look political. romney is going, i just have to not make it look political right now. >> romney has to focus on what he needs to do for the campaign. this isn't a political situation, this is an american situation, the storm is hurting americans, no matter what their party affiliation, the president has a responsibility as president of the united states, which means, communicate with your governors, you know, people are going to argue whether it hurts or helps him. what matters is the campaign and the final seven days leading into it is going to be how their ground game. charles: but the point is though, david, the president does look like he's doing that job and walking the fine line, being presidential, being attenti
with the biggest whopper of this campaign. i mean we've seen a lot of big lies coming from the romney campaign. i mean on a lot of different topics right? particularly mitt romney trying to have it both ways or three ways on almost every issue. you never know where he really stands on any issue. the biggest lie of all is this lie in the last couple of days, mitt romney is trying to sell the people of ohio -- it doesn't look like they're buying it. the latest poll shows president obama up five still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this
in the way. the october jobs report will be released in three and a half hours. both the obama and romney campaign hope the numbers will help them in the race. it's too close to call right now. christine romans is going to have a look at it. christine? >> let's talk about what we are expecting in the final economic report before tuesday. in three and a half hours, we'll find out what happens for jobs and the unemployment rate. the expectation is the unemployment rate is 7.9%, picking up slightly with 125,000 jobs added in the month. the trend, though, is what is so important here, right? sometimes you get a little in the month. the trend is what's important. 7.8% was the unemployment rate when the president took office. last month, he's back to where he started. february, 2009, that's the stimulus. then the unemployment rate rise up to 10% in october, 2009 as the stimulus money was being deployed. stubbornly high unemployment. then drifting lower much of this year. we can look at job creation and you can see how jobs have been added now since the end of 2010 consistently, but not robustly
mitt romney among likely voters but when you look at the people who are both likely to vote and follow politics, that lead shrinks to only two. both sides acknowledge that getting out the vote is crucial and a huge part of doing that is finding the volunteers willing to keep calling and knocking until the election. >> is this your life now until a week from tomorrow? >> we're going to keep going up until the very end, keep making calls and doing doors until the polls close. >> you're out there. i'm going to be out there more. >> ted rowlands joins us now from racine, wisconsin. how is the race looking there? >> reporter: we mentioned a poll by marquette university that had the president up eight points, a cnn poll released after that has the lead a little bit more narrow, within the margin of error. both sides agree that this is a -- an election that could go either way. the state of wisconsin could go either way and the difference will be who can get their base out to vote. >> well, they both are certainly trying hard to do that. ted rowlands thank you very much. >> reporter: you bet.
has done to the campaign. both president obama and mitt romney altering their campaign schedules, of course. but there are two different positions. how does this play out? >> great coverage this morning. and i have to pause and say it's sobering to see the pictures, to think about all the people with kids who can't get to a shift they may need. and it's hard to talk clinically about the politics, but go ahead and put on the stethoscope here. and point out that the campaigns are not suspended, the campaigns have been going on, they're just having to be very ginger about how they navigate it. at the same time president obama yesterday was sending out an appeal to his campaign list for red cross donations, his campaign aides were on a conference call talking about how they're about to go up in ohio with an ad hammering romney. they also announce there as you were talking about they're going up in pennsylvania. the president has that automatic stage. we saw him acting there as commander in chief. mitt romney has to avoid looking like he's going for photo ops. looking like he's doing
will come back. and then on thursday, both romney and obama will regain, you know, they will start to campaign again. looking forward, i don't see sandy as a factor. >> no, i don't. it might have marginal effects. it does show the president is presidential. people expect that in a national emergency. that's not really stuff. you might say that if you look at where the storm is spread. it's now in ohio and virginia. these are places where the obama campaign had counted on early voting and they made a big effort on that. the president himself cashed the ballot early first time in u.s. history way to encourage others. democrats thought that might be advantageous for them. more republicans than democrats who voted early. again i think that's probably a watch -- wash. one thing it might effect things as we resume the campaign. tomorrow is going to be a half and half day by the end of the week we will be back to campaigning. when you have this emergency and you have this tragedy and latest effects of the tragedy are going to go right through election day. not a one day deal. there is imp
campaign and the romney campaign. both have put a lot of bodies on the ground in these swing states. it is a really technologically sophisticated architecture for turning voters out. and one thing we're about to see is whose architecture is better. they have not led in an ohio poll in quite a while. they have not led in any of these nbc swing state polls, there are 32 of them according to twitter this morning. if their turnout model's better than obama's which seems unlikely from what i've heard, but if it is, that could change things. otherwise it's hard to see campaigning or another ad is going to do. people have heard it all by now. >> chuck, it's donny. obviously, we're all living through sandy. >> reporter: yes. >> you're in iowa or a wisconsin or an ohio swing voter, how does it play? >> reporter: you know, i think -- i'm guessing yesterday, seeing a roep aepublican and det working together. when you look at what i think has been a very effective closing message up until sandy happened, which was he was simply going to the -- wherever he was going, sometimes it was base counti
: clinton was in minnesota earlier in the week, where the romney campaign recently announced a new ad buy. it's a place both sides had earlier assumed would belong to the democrats. the obama camp countered with a new ad featuring the endorsement of former secretary of state colin powell, ran it there and in nine other states. >> i think we ought to keep on the track that we're on. >> i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >> woodruff: but the romney campaign also began airing a spanish-language ad in florida tying obama to latin american dictators hugo chavez and fidel castro. >> we are amera's men. >> woodruff: and american future fund, a super pac supporting romney is running ads targeting women in michigan and pennsylvania, states considered safely democratic. as you can see on the "newshour's" vote 2012 map center" there are seven states currently considered by the associated press to be true toss ups: nevada, colorado, iowa, ohio, virginia, florida and new hampshire. it shows each candidate's quickest potential path to 270 electoral votes. including one scenario giving preside
basically announced, he went through, he had a lot of om both thgovernor romney and president obama, and basically he said president obama was not somebody who has shown the bipartisan efforts that he hoped for, but in this particular occasion, for a particular reason, namely his awareness and concern for global warming, he said i'm going to support -- >> he gave his backing to president obama as opposed to romney. >> and that surprised a lot of people. >> are you disappointed? >> i'm not disappointed. he's grown up -- >> he's a personal friend of yours. >> yes. >> did you call him up and say what are you doing? >> no, i asked him what he did fothe office building for my people because of the flooding. >> i have to get into that with mort. >> i was fascinated by it, john. we want to pin mort down on this. >> it was amazing, i thought, that i don't know why he even had to get into it at this time. he had plenty on his hands.ow he wants more money from the federal government. >> and i wonder if he >>wasn't influenced by the superstorm. because the climate change. up until now -- >> th
and mitt romney just has to keep campaigning, but both campaigns don't know how this will affect town out. the big thing to do is look at new hampshire and virginia, two states that were affected by the storm and how it could affect the town out the voters. we do not know how it will shake out or if there is a rallying behind president obama in the last few difficulties before election day. >>neil: you never know if they would extend election day it would probably be a legal hurdle so leaving that aside, a lot of folks could be without power in a lot of areas so they have to file a paper ballot if you go to the precinct and you are, this is like some of these old countries where you have a slip paper and they count it at the precinct and it could be a long election night, could it not? >>guest: it could. and you are absolutely right, provisional ballots are something we will have to watch the i point out that most affected areas are not swing states but it could affect a senate race in connecticut and we will have to wait to see what the provisional ballots do for that but in cincinnati w
to shave my mustache. >> there is evidence to back up both and the romney campaign believes momentum. our own history has shown candidates, there are challengers, and the whole thing happens and the whole thing won't move. is that what we're seeing or is this a desperate attempt to what's going on? >> chuck, look at the poll numbers. there is serious tightening in these states, the lean democratic column for quite a while right now. but it is important to note that president obama actually leads still in all of them and, in fact, the margins we're often seeing look close to what john kerry carried those states in 2004 versus 2008. but overall this is something -- this is the recognition the power the super pacs are playing. the pro-romney restore in play. other super pacs going in there and that's opened up things a little bit. the biggest question, why didn't we see these moves months ago? >> let me ask you something, are you concerned -- look, the fact of the matter is and i've done some of the math, it is possible and it's not like an out there scenario, that mitt romney could win the
of the campaign. you know they both of them have been not totally sole on the notion that romney was going to win for most of the time. privately both -- >> is that what's happening? >> i think both of them are looking, to some extent, what comes next. i'm not saying they don't want governor romney to win this election but both skap ceptical his chances for a year and a half. governor christie, not taking anything away from -- i think he was genuinely star struck to be on marine one, but he needs to get re-elected. he has a tough re-election battle. you can't be on the wrong side of president obama in the disaster situation if you're going to win re-election in a blue state in a year from now when he has to run again. >> which, by the way -- >> the only way he can run in 2016 if is he wins again. politics are there. governor bush's politics are different. trying to get himself back into play after having been out for a long time, he's going to be a different hoe down for him and a different way to deal with republican base than the one that chris christie is in. different political paths. >> if m
president bill clinton and singer dave matthews. the president and mitt romney are both covering a lot of ground this weekend trying to motivate voters. they both used yesterday's jobs report as proof that they would be the best choice to be commander-in-chief. >> we learned the companies hired more workers in october than in any time in the last eight months. >> we learned that it is actually 7.9%. that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. >> romney will also be traveling to the commonwealth before tuesday's election. he has a rally scheduled for monday afternoon at george mason university. >>> today is the last chance for many local voters wanting to cast a ballot before election day to head to the polls. it is the final day for early voting in all eight of d.c.'s wards and also the last day to cast an in person absentee ballot in virginia. meantime early voting for people in maryland ended yesterday. virginians have plenty to vote for on tuesday. one issue is question one. a ballot measure concerning eminent domain. northern virginia bureau chief julie carey had the details o
president obama, mitt romney. in the key swing states of ohio and florida, that's where both candidates have been spending a lot of their time. joining me now is mark murray, nbc news senior political editor, and edo keith congressional reporter for "the washington post." hi, guys, ready to go? >> good morning. >> how you feeling? >> let's talk about these polls you put out there, mark. what did you find in florida, and ohio? >> well, in ohio, president obama has a six-point advantage among likely voters. 51% to 45%. in florida, it's closer. president obama at 49% among likely voters. yet mitt romney at 47% among likely voters. one thing that is helping president obama is that early vote, the overwhelming number of people who've already voted early say that they are backing president obama. mitt romney has a little bit of a better score over obama on the economy. in florida, but in ohio it's president obama with the slight edge on who would better handle the economy. >> okay, so what is the interpretation of these numbers, though. does it mean it's all about getting out there to vote? i mean
for mitt romney to gain ohio? >> well, the independent votes are important to both camps, thomas. but i believe that the independents will swing the president's way. this is a choice election. a choice between a president who has been working very hard over the last four years to steady this economy or for a governor that will lie to try to get the presidency. i think independent voters understand what their choice is and that choice is president barack obama. >> ohio state senator nina turner. as always, lovely to see you. thanks for your time. >> you too, thomas. >>> six days to go and america's big decision is coming our way pretty quickly. a big question, though, looming, is pennsylvania in play. the keystone state. both the campaigns are blanketing the state with ads in an effort to grab its 20 electoral votes. many political experts say if mitt romney can flip ohio, the keystone state could be next. >> by the way, i like coal. people in the coal industry feel like it's getting crushed by your policies. i want to get america and north america energy independent so we can create tho
. >> both democrats and republicans don't like it. and in my opinion, if mitt romney were to win the popular vote and barack obama were to win the electoral college vote, i don't think the electoral college would be disbanded. it would blow up in a fiery ball because both parties would have been lost out with the electoral college in the course of 12 years. >> what will they do? >> well, there would have to be a constitutional amendment. there's a plan to do an end run around the constitution something called the national popular vote plan and i don't want to take too long to explain i want but it's a way for states, interstate compact and a bunch of states have agreed to it saying that they will cast their electoral votes for the winner of the national popular vote regardless of how their state votes if enough states agree to this to equal the number of 270. i know it's confusing. if you have a dvr rewind it. it makes sense. >> the bottom line is how can you win the popular vote and still not be president of the united states? >> we're the only democracy on earth that uses this system and d
between comforting and campaigning. on wednesday both president obama and governor mitt romney urged the country to try and come together. >> we're going to have a lot of work to do. i don't want anybody to feel that somehow this is all going to get cleaned up overnight. but what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> we also have full hearts because we know our fellow americans in some parts of our country are struggling through tough times with the hurricane that hit the atlantic coast. when there are challenges we come together and help one another and that help is needed now. >> both men head back out on the campaign trail today. the campaign trail. a poll shows mr. obama leading. mr. obama leading romney among aceely voters. in september that poll found the and new je critics tied. new jersey's governor is facing christi criticism from other hepublicans. theydnesday we saw christie join the president on his helicopter. stor aboen to what he said about i
of aimless bury, massachusetts. and in both cases mitt romney asked for federal assistance and federal aid. when the second disaster happened, romney and the state had money sitting in the until because people were evacuated. he refused to spend the state's money even though they had a surplus because he wanted to know what the federal government was going to give him first. he didn't think it was a moral hazard to wait for the federal government to write a check before he spent massachusetts's own money and he wound up refusing to help families in lower massachusetts who were really hurting and he refused to spend the state's money to help them. so what is the actual moral hazard here? >> steve, if it was at least a month left in the campaign i have no doubt team obama would have an ad out, at least a week or two from now, with this fema response, including disaster relief. everything would be in that ad. and but now with the election coming on tuesday, it's difficult to see how team obama cuts that ad and gets it out there in a way people don't think are overly exploiting the situation.
not enough room for romney to come back. as you well know, both sides are arguing their case for why they have certain advantages going into election day. what we know is how close it is. and so there's much that we can't know or really say at this point. >> and there's word even from some democrats in michigan that i know the obama campaign says michigan is not in play but some democrats on the ground in michigan telling us, telling me, that it is closep. a lot closer than their xlfrts zo comfort zone and pennsylvania is not perhaps in play but closer than they expected to be. the senate candidate not doing as well as expected given his registration advantage. really risks for the casey campaign with -- up against ap candidate who is from the west which is normally a casey stronghold. so there are a number of places that are a lot closer than the comfort zone for the obama team, despite their very scientifically based huge and we see now the president coming down the steps. >> in casual attire, he will be seen and the picture right there -- >> craig fugate, head of fema, and being g
of this really is a very delicate act right now on both the part of the president and mitt romney? >> you know, it's very delicate, yes, but, you know, the president has to do his job. what he is doing is doing his job, which is he is going to devastated areas which one would expect, the commander in chief to do. he is deploying resources. if he didn't show up there, people would be saying where is the president? i think, a, he has a job so do and he is doing it. it is a little more difficult, of course, for mitt romney. mitt romney doesn't have a job to do. he is not the president. that's his job. he has to walk a fine line and saying, look, we have to think of you people along the eastern seaboard, and then take a turn and take a turn to politics and campaigning as the president will do when he gets back on the campaign trail tomorrow, but in the meantime, he has to be president of the united states. you mention the president will be campaigning again and have stops in wisconsin and vegas. all very key to winning the election. you have romney in florida today in tampa just the last hour. tel
, strategic, competitive, data-driven, they are both that. but romney has some of the other traits. he's very rank-oriented. if you read his book, "no apology," he wants america to be number one. he doesn't see a balance of power. he expresses less empathy, less empathy is linked with more testosterone, there's a lot of articles about that. so he seems the to express more of the testosterone in his system. as a matter of fact, his face is really quite high testosterone, the angular jaw, the heavy brow ridges, the high cheekbones are testosterone. so he's more testosterone. obama seems to be more expressive of the estrogen system, as well as testosterone. you know, there's a lot of football players, actually, who express a lot of estrogen as well as testosterone. and obama expresses a lot more of the estrogen. he's emotionally expressive, he sees the big picture, he's very contextual, holistic minded, got very good people skills, very good verbal skills, he's quite imaginative, these are all traits that are linked with the estrogen system. >> okay. >> you know, helen, i often think we spend to
